The State SenatejinAocked
Private dispatches from Indiana and Arm-
strong counties announce the triumphant
election of Dr. Thomas... St. Clair, the Union
candidate for Senator to fill the vacancy created
by the resignation , of Major White, by a ma
jority of twelve hundred. • The vote polled
,as very small; but the . majority much
larger than was expected, coniidering, the num
ber of loyal men from that district in the array.
—This is the last act in the, jiroCeedings to
end the dead lock in the' Senate; and put a
stop to the machinations of the treasonumpa-
Lhizers in that body.
An Important Work for. the. People
Since it has been fairly-tiseettairied that the
i;reat masses of the peciPle . - are unalterably
J fixed in their resolution ;to-re-elect : 4113raltafn
:iiincoln, the politicians -who have heretofore
arrogated to therriselves the legitiniate right
to control such affairs, have entnrekt
Vinations to defeatthe wishes_ of the people
on this subject: .
So far: as our own ef
forts will go, therefore, we intend to labor
for the,`frtistratice of the, Schemes .. Of: the

shall know their friends, and hence-we are
determined to expose these . demagognes, to
the just indignatien of masses';':Trithe
meantime we earnestly enunsel, the
„peep% in
every district' in the State,, to; indicate the

rise in their might, and crush beneath their
heels, the cabals which corrupt politicians
are now forming. By such a,course, alone,
can the-people hope to rule.
The Indiana Seikoloi•ial Election,
The election for Senator in the ludiainiiind.
Armstrong district, was all that was necessary
'to fix the stigma of eternal condemnation on
the minority in the Senate,. will - be recol
lected that the leaders of that minority ex
hausted their cunning in devising obstacles
to frustrate the organization of the Senate.
When those demago goes discovered that
their parliamentary subterfuges, were about to
fail•them, and that an election for Senator to
fill the vacancy created by the resignation of
Senator White, would take place, the leaders
of the minority insisted that such an election
could not be held, that the Speaker of the Senate
had no right to issnea warrant for its holding,
and that it would b e 'illegal if held. This Was the
last dodge. 'But hew did *the people of the
district act, who claim tobe' , DemoCiatsi and
who are supposed - to'• :follow the ;read
of Clymer, Laxaberton , d Co. ? The
Democracy of'-and: lArmstrong
cduntieS•recOgnized the legaliti , Of the proceed
ings in the Senate, made necessary to the
ordering of this' eledtion; by nominating a
candidate and contesting at the polls for his
election. Thus, the organization of the Senate
was recognized by the people'of , -both partiei•
and tinis the most withering :rebuke eVer ;ad
-nainistered to a corrupt faction,. was out
to the demagogues of the minorityln the State
Senate. . , • • • •
..=-This recognition, by the people - Of :
parties, establishes the precedent bf.i . the or
gaiiization of the Senate. It will now leave
the majority with a high Warrant to proceed
at once to the discharge of the regular legis- -
lative business. The present organization o f
the Senate, is the legal, Constittztional. -..e9ir
struetion of that body, prdpared imreeditttely
for the transaction of business. This is a fit-
tinttermination of the struggle ;between the
. friends of law and order, -and the faction-which
has been' able so long te,delaY legitdaAolixt It
is a compensation, too, almost,eufficientforAli

The elintax.
A few months since, we asserted that the
climax, or rather the result of rebellion, would
be infidelity. We desired t 9 he understood by
this assertion' to mean that the failiire of ;the
slave-holders to destioy a, free government,.
would be the signal for the allies of the slave
holders to attempt the destrtiction *of afiee
religion. The foe which made the effort in
the South to overthrow the Anierican Union,
is the ally of infidelity. Slavery imearifi delity
are twin sisters—both the prolific -bree.ders
of rebellion, anarchy and bloOdslied.
where one fails, the other is ready -with a
brood of, evils to, plague mankind. • This,, is
verified by the movements of the sympathizers
with the slave-holders' rebellion in the State
of "Ohio, who now propose to organiye anew
church in opposition to the church of the drily
true and living God. The Tory OTan a day
or two'sauce, alluded to this movement; by de
claring it to be the undertaking of the people_
to get rid of political preachers; bdt since the
announcement we have seen: a copy of the
Western Christian Advocate,. from which we
learn that the movement, had :its . oiikin with
:such men as Dr. Olds and VirefArrShaw:;.of ,
Lancaster, Ohio, both of whom are notations
treason syMpattliger% as well as..avqwpd,i7l,-
la,cable infidels! - .
.--Here, then, is the new church whiCh the
leaders of modern democracy are about to or
ganize—a church, with slavery for its corner, ,
and infidelity for its cap, stone. We 'have
been looking for just such a knovement the
last y4r. As the slave-holderstfail in their
effort to destrojr freedom; the infidels
will begin their' work of putlFing an end, if
possible, to man'sreligious liberty. And - such
is the movement'whicii the Tory Organ desires'
to see commenced in this region. Of course
that sheet is prepared to advocate and defend
infidelitywith the . same , zeldwith whiehAt has
devoted itself to the advocacy and defence of
slavery !
Wa,hington's Birthday.
The approaching •enniversary, of the birth
of the. Father .of his. Country remise:lElllE4 so
far as our knowledge extends, that there have
bedn nopreparationt made by, the ;citizens of
Harrisburg: for its Proper Observance. . There
never was a time when the' 22d of Febrimry
deserved such honor, as its redurrence in , a
few days will demand. Well has a eptempo
rary writerren Piked, that since the, firing of
the last . gun - which announced an acknowl
edgement of, our :independence, there never
`has been a period when there was so much
actual neceisity, and so, much real ,cause to
deinonstrate . oui-. loyalty to the - Union as at
the present time. The failing spirit of the re
bellion would thereloi, .be made to feel and
know that in the North there was still an
abiding•Confiderice in the righteousness of the
war iii wl3Lch we are engaged; and further,
that in heart - we, are enlisted for the perpetu
ation of the War until no such thing as Rebel-
lion is known from the lakes t 9 the Gulf-of
Moxipo.' The remains of the, sire ,of Mt: Ver
are still within the : bomidaries of -the
Union, rand the birth-day-of. the great hero is
certainly deseivirig aprofie tiibute from those
who enjoy' ,' great;tiefisinga
.. .for, which hEi
-.fought through, the-slarkest.period ever known
to a young but energetic.nation:
Relative to the reasons why there 'should be
an unusual celebratiOn.of the coming 22d in
our city, we might chronicle an almost
less enumeration. Beyond the display of our
militia forces, it - i . rOnld 4ferd an opportunity
in which we fuldin, parade the war worn vete
rans who 'hare. come back from the camp and
.the lettle-field, and are dwelling temporarily
ih our midst until they shall he called again
to face the storm of leaden hail on the plains
still held by those in arms against the. Gene
ral Govern-went.
It would have also a good :effect upon the
regiments themselves: . 1- The men have neVer
lied an opportunity of arb, ,,.- g themselves in
the pride of their military : Organization, 'with
the battle-torn-flags and, the trophies won by
them in many gallantly fought fieldlt. Nor
have they ever ezperienned the public enthn
sieMn and the gratitude whipe are felt for their
services inthe field. they have come quietly
into our midst unheralded by the -4 sounds at-,
tendant on an enthusiastic reception; they
have; quietly settled down among their friends,
and, with the exception that ihey can be seen
singly or in squads in our streets, we would
scarcely - know that•they had for a time retired
from the soldier's life. SuCh a celebration
would - give them renewed determination on
their return to service, and the acknowledged
appreCiation of their services which it would
aftord would cheer them in many an arduous
march and in many an hour of peril.

We submit it to the candid judgment of
those who are now suffering from the nuk
ance, and to the fair , decision of those who
are apprehensive for the success of our mili
tary operations, whether the recruiting
service ever was in a more deplorable condi
tion, so far as the influence which Col. Bum
ford holds, in the State of Pennsylvania.
Committees are here from all parts of the
Commonwealth, urging and fretting for deci
sions which this officer is either too ignorant
or too timid to make, and which come di-
rectly within his scope of duty. Every case
submitted to Bamford, is at once referred to
thp Department at Washington, when it was
reserved - for him, (Bumford,) at the time of
his 'appointment, to lea with such cases
promptly himself. In this , manner, a ruinous,
wasteful and harrassing delay is inipcited upon
recruiting officers, districts and individuals. We
have been supplying recruiting officers and
agents with blanks, which should have been
issued by the Superintendent of the Recruit
iiitg Service, but the utter want of system in
the transaction of busineasjmder the Bumf ord
administration, thus results in the neglect of
the simplest as well as the most important de
tails of his department. If a draft is made ne
cessary, in paany portions of Pennsylvania, the
people may either thank Bamford, 'or give the
credit to the War Departinent in refusing to
remove him and detail a man of brains and
energy to conduct the public business. Why
this change has not been made long since, we
are at a' great loss to divine. - Perhaps when
the full force of the` evil thus being daily
wrought, bursts like a thunder clap on Mr.
Stanton, he will see the necessity of ordering
a change. But then; alas, it will be too late
to effect any good. In the , meantime, we leave
the resrionsibility of the' irritation - worked by
the imbecile administration. of affairs at this
recruiting post, to the responsibility of the
Secretary of War. He can remove the evil, if
he chooses; and -if he does not choose, he
must take the responsibility.
